Most Recent Shark Bites

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that there's "pessimism" about Packers RB Aaron Jones' availability for Thursday night's game against the 49ers. The team continues to be cautious bringing him back from that calf injury. With RBs Jamaal Williams and A.J. Dillon both out, it looks like Green Bay will be rolling with RBs Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin, who have combined for 15 NFL carries. ESPN's Rob Demovsky tweeted today that Williams "has given them no reason to trust him" and that the Packers could "use a short pass game w/ Ervin to act as runs."

Packers RB A.J. Dillon has been placed on the COVID list. He's out for at least Thursday night's game against the 49ers. The bigger question is who Dillon was in close contact with recently. Those players may not be able to play on Thursday. We'll keep a close eye on the situation.

The forecast for today's Vikings-Packers game calls for 25 mph sustained winds with gusts close to 40 mph. The wind is expected to die down a bit throughout the game. Temperatures will be in the 30s with a wind chill in the 20s. Those are tough conditions for the passing and kicking games. We've lowered our passing projections a bit for both teams and would avoid both kickers in this game.

11:11am EST 11/1/20

Packers K Mason Crosby (calf, back) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. We’d opt for a healthier K in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Packers K Mason Crosby (calf, back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. We’ll see if Green Bay adds a kicker, but avoid the situation in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He remained sidelined in practice all week, so consider him iffy for a Week 9 return. RB Jamaal Williams gets another game as Green Bay’s lead back on Sunday. He played 89% of the offensive snaps and racked up 19 carries with 5 targets last week.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's looking like he'll miss this weekend's game vs. the Vikings, giving Jamaal Williams another game as Green Bay's lead back.

Packers K Mason Crosby missed Wednesday's practice with left calf and back injuries. If you're a Crosby owner, you might want to line up an alternative for Week 8. We'll continue to monitor his status.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He was seemingly close to playing against the Texans this past weekend, but this obviously isn't a great start for his chances of returning for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Check back tomorrow for another update.

11:10am EDT 10/25/20

Packers OLB Preston Smith (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Texans. He's a low-level IDP but available if you had him in your plans.

11:10am EDT 10/25/20

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be at 100% today. That leaves Tonyan as a risk/reward TE1 in today’s plus matchup.

11:10am EDT 10/25/20

Packers RB Aaron Jones is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He suffered a mild calf strain on Thursday and reportedly wanted to play today. But the always-cautious Packers medical staff is holding him out. We’ll see if Jones can make it back for Week 8. Jamaal Williams figures to lead the Green Bay backfield today and is a strong fantasy play. Rookie A.J. Dillon should also take on an expanded role in the running game and is a RB3 or flex option in non-PPR leagues.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is expected to play against the Texans today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tonyan only got in a limited practice on Friday but was able to play through this injury last week. Assuming he ends up active, he’ll be a risk/reward TE1 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remains a game-time decision for today's tilt with the Texans, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Jones made the trip to Houston and is pushing to play. But "if Jones isn't 100%, he won't go," Pelissero adds. We're still betting on Jones being inactive but will find out for sure around 11:30 am ET.

Packers beat writer Ryan Woods tweets," The plan is for [Aaron] Jones to not play v Texans." Jones reportedly believes he can play, but the team is expected to play it safe. Jones' absence would leave Green Bay's backfield to Jamaal Williams, A.J. Dillon and practice-squad call-up Dexter Williams. Jamaal is a virtual lock to handle the pass-catching work and is the odds-on favorite to lead the backfield in carries. Check out our updated projections for the Packers backfield.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. We’ll find out whether Tonyan is playing by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he’ll be a risk/reward TE1 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Packers RB Aaron Jones suffered a "very mild calf strain" in Thursday's practice, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Jones didn't practice on Friday. "Jones wants to play Sunday against the Texans but sounds like it'll be a game-time decision," Pelissero adds. Packers-Texans kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we'll know whether Jones is playing by noon. He'll be virtually impossible to bench in this plus matchup if he's active. If not, Jamaal Williams would likely lead Green Bay's backfield, with rookie A.J. Dillon also taking on an expanded role.

Update: Jones is officially listed as questionable.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. Houston is now in question. Tonyan's absence would leave Jace Sternberger as Green Bay's lead pass-catching TE.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to return from this injury last week, but his status bears monitoring over the next few days.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game against the Bills. That locks WR Mecole Hardman into a top 3 role and makes him an upside WR3 in fantasy lineups.
